Australia Emigration

& Visas

We are a licensed emigration and relocation consultancy with 25 years in the industry. Let us help you make your emigration journey as fast and pain-free as possible.

Australia

Australia’s migration process involves an assessment of your skills to determine whether or not they are transferable to Australia’s job market and skills shortage. These skills include your qualifications and/or work experience. We require your CV to determine these factors before we can start the assessment process.

Your CV should include details of your age, qualification award dates and your full employment history, showing all periods of work.

Once we receive your CV, we will assess your background and provide you with information that reflects the steps you’ll need to take in order to gain the right to live and work in Australia and eventually remain indefinitely.

Should you wish to utilize our services as visa application specialists, you will then engage in a formal written agreement with us which will enable us to represent you in your applications to emigrate. When you have completed the sign on process, we will then provide you with a step-by-step guide of the documents you require to become visa ready.

You will work with a dedicated file manager who is allocated to assist you in following the steps provided by your licensed adviser.

Andrew and the team at Network Migration are fantastic. They are extremely knowledgeable and honest and they find the best option for you based on your circumstances. They always get back to my emails no matter if I've asked the same question multiple times. After-Sales care is second to none. Even after making the move I can always rely on the team to answer any questions I have. They made my dream of moving abroad come true and I can't thank them enough. I highly recommend using Network Migration.

Andrew and his team is exceptional in their work, they carried and coached us throughout the whole process, preparing us for what is to come and how to handle the process. I can only thank Network Migration in the way they treated us. All our worries, questions and concerns were dealt with in our time frames and with the utmost respect. I will refer Network Migration to anyone who is serious about emigrating. We utilized their service through word of mouth after potentially losing the opportunity to emigrate due to utilizing another company who was all but professional. Andrew and his team saved the day in our hour of need with their professional support, guidance and help with communication.

If it wasn't for you two I was not going to get this visa. Too many things were complex and your guidance was invaluable. THANK YOU so so much! You served me with grace and I appreciate that about you. You took so much pressure from NZ but did not lose your professionalism one bit. Andrew, your experience and guidance got us through. There were many instances you used that experience to give me the wisdom to move forward when I had almost given up and needed a brother figure.

I want to say that there is so much stress, money spent and pressure to reach our goal, and that’s why we put our trust in the hands of Andrew and his team. Leandi was efficient and amazing to work with. We appreciated that they were "upfront" with us, dealing with all the paperwork, their quick email response times and phone calls when they knew we needed answers.

Andrew and his team - and our managing case officer Steven Stols in particular - stuck the difficulties and challenges with which were presented during the whole process, out with us; and through it all, never once left us feeling unsure or as if anything was ever asking too much ... but instead confronted the relatable with us, until every last thing was sorted and finalized. My wife and I now proudly join the ranks of the literally thousands of other clients who have previously enlisted the services of Network Migration Services to successfully facilitate and manage the Emigration process on our behalf, and we are truly grateful for everything they had done for us, as people, and not just as clients with a file number.

Andrew and Lana, A year ago today we (finally) boarded our flight from Jhb to Christchurch to start our new lives in New Zealand. Migrating is a stressful and emotional rolercoaster process and ours was compounded by the additional complications we experienced. Throughout our tears and frustrations, you were always professional and courteous and most importantly YOU GOT THE JOB DONE! With our Residency visas in our passports we can now breathe a sigh of relief and say THANK YOU for all you did for us.
